Point of interest

point of interest , or POI , is a specific location that someone may find useful or interesting. An example is a spot on the Earth Representing the rental of the Space Needle , gold is no one Mar. Representing the rental of the mountain , Olympus Mons . Most users use the term when referring to hotels, campsites, fuel stations or any other categories used in modern (automotive) navigation systems . In medical fields such as histology / pathology / histopathology , points of interest are selected from the general background in a field of view ; For example, Continue reading “Point of interest”

Parus (satellite)

Parus ( Russian : Парус meaning Sail ), aussi Tsyklon-B gold Tsiklon-B ( Russian : Циклон-Б meaning Cyclone-B ) and Tsikada-M ( Russian : Цикада-М meaning Cicada-M ), [1] GRAU index 11F627 , Is a Russian , previously Soviet satellite constellation used for communication and navigation . As of 2010, 99 Parus satellites have been launched, starting with Kosmos 700 in 1974. [2] All launches have been conducted using Kosmos-3M carrier rockets, flying from sites 132 and 133 at the Plesetsk Cosmodrome . [3] Continue reading “Parus (satellite)”


OziExplorer is raster navigation and mapping software for Windows. It is very popular among off-road drivers and adventure travelers as it makes it possible to use and create custom maps for remote locations that are not fully covered by major map providers like Tele Atlas . That is why the software is also widely used on Post-Soviet states territory.

Local Area Augmentation System

The Local Area Augmentation System (LAAS) is an all-weather aircraft landing system based on real-time differential correction of the GPS signal. Local reference receivers Located around the airport send data to a central location at the airport . This data is used to formulate a correction message, which is then transmitted to users via a VHF Data Link . A receiver on an aircraft uses this information to correct GPS signals, which then provides a standard ILS -style display to use while flying a precision approach . The FAA has stopped using the term LAAS and has transitioned to the International Civil Aviation Organization(ICAO) terminology of Ground-Based Augmentation System (GBAS). [1] The FAA has indefinitely delayed plans for federal GBAS acquisition, the system can be purchased by air and non-Federal navigation aid. [2] Continue reading “Local Area Augmentation System”
